on the presidential election. there is some evidence that a lot of these people are obama voters who are marginal democrats and may just click down the line, don't follow politics that closely and may vote for warren because she is a democrat. no matter how much brown does as an individual in the campaign, the obama effect in massachusetts could swamp his efforts. >> what have you seen, the tone of people as they are paying attention and watching this? there was some argument on the street. >> there was a lot of attention and a lot of, i would say, hypersupporters going at each other before the debate. i was able to spend considerable time with both candidates over the weekend, seeing them on the campaign trail. what is so striking is that both seem to be well regarded. scott brown is described as the most popular in massachusetts. elizabeth warren, one issue for her, massachusetts never elected a woman to the senate or to become governor. each has beluilt-in challenges. >> thank you both. i appreciate it. >>> we have new national numbers out today on the presidential race. quinnipiac university
